The participants of the Sustainable Energy at Sea PORTS (SE@PORTS) project have met to present the technical progress made in the initiative looking to integrate wave energy converters at seaports as they discussed the next step forward.

During the meeting, the project partners presented the technical progress made by the different work packages relating mainly to the design of a hybrid wave energy converter device, along with an analysis of its hydraulic behavior using different numeric models.

The SE@PORTS project is funded by the European Oceanera-Net program, bringing together a total of seven institutions from Portugal, Spain and Belgium, with the collaboration of the port authorities of Las Palmas and Leixoes in Porto.

The purpose of SE@PORTS is to study to demonstrate the high potential of the port structures for building wave energy converters as they could prove suitable since they are designed to resist wave action.

The project lasts from 2017 – 2019, and involves INEGI as coordinator, together with UPorto, APDL, Fórum Oceano, IH Cantabria, Plocan, and IMDC.

Then, the most promising concept will be physically studied in laboratory at different scales, according to the project description.

Dissemination will be organized around research activities, the outcome of these activities will be published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at international conferences.

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) 2019

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) is where the energy transition takes place. It is Europe’s leading gathering of the entire offshore energy industry and your opportunity to network with highly qualified experts and professionals across global markets.

For more than 12 years OEEC is unique in bringing together the offshore energy industry sectors oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy. More than 550 exhibitors from around the world present their newest services, projects and innovative products. On top of this OEEC presents international trade missions, pavilions, exclusive network lounges of the OEEC member club, the Startup Zone, matchmaking areas, the Stage and networking drinks. Approximately 12,000 professionals will visit the exhibition, take part in strategic discussions, immersive technical conference sessions focusing on the future and technical developments in the industry. Three days of networking and together shaping the future of energy.

So the question is not if but how you will be participating at Offshore Energy 2019.
